All About Thomas

Well, hello... what's this?

What could be hiding inside?

 It's Thomas!!!!   I completed a few Tot Books I've been working on for the kids, the first of which is all about Thomas The Tank Engine... a very popular guy in this house.  I found the idea and several of the templates over at 1+1+1=1.  What a gold mine of ideas!  The shape cards (which I printed 2 sets of to make a matching and memory game,) the Thomas and Friends book and the counting booklet all came from her website. 

I found the puzzle and the coloring pages at the Thomas and Friends website. The color game I made myself.

I also added in the kids names and pictures in the Thomas and Friends book.  They love to flip through it and find themselves at the end!

A lot of cutting and laminating, but very worth it.  Next up... Veggie Tales and The Very Hungry Caterpillar!

This is so cute and creative! Looks like the kids love it, too. Is this part of their homeschooling right now?

oh yea, they think it's awesome! The Tot Books aren't part of my "formal curriculum" if you want to call it that, it's more of back up learning. If we're having a bad day, or they just don't want to do whatever I have planned, I know that we can at least play with these and they'll still be learning.

My boys used to LOVE Thomas. They would have gone crazy over something like this when they were younger.
